2007 Queen Elizabeth II Gold Proof Act of Union £2 - Boxed / Coa

The design divides the coin into four quarters, with a rose and a thistle occupying two of the quarters and a portcullis in each of the other two quarters. The whole design is overlaid with a linking jigsaw motif and surrounded by the dates ‘1707’, ‘2007’ and the denomination ‘TWO POUNDS’

When James VI of Scotland became James I of England in 1603, the two countries were united under one monarchy. Over the course of the seventeenth century, there were several attempts to bring about a closer union between the two countries but more than a century passed before Scotland and England were finally united under one Parliament. The Act was passed in 1707 and to commemorate the 300th anniversary of a remarkable union, The Royal Mint issued a special £2 coin. Created by Yvonne Holton FRSA, the reverse design symbolises the joining of Scotland and England in a political union through a rose and thistle growing from a single stem, accompanied by a portcullis to signify Parliament and overlaid with a linking device of a jigsaw. The obverse bears the portrait of Her Majesty The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.
